I wanted to put together a list of gluten-free cookbooks and reference books I own for my readers, in case you are interested. Don’t worry – nobody expects you to have as many as I do. Since I am the book chairman for my local support group, it makes sense for me to know at least a little about each book that I am selling. Plus, I may actually have an addiction. I’m not sure.
I’m also in the process of putting together an Excel spreadsheet of the tables of contents for the cookbooks. This, I do, for many good reasons.
- I thought it was a good idea.
- I was bored one afternoon.
- So I can search easily between all the books to find a recipe I might like to try.
- So my friends and family can look up a recipe title if they want to make something for me, or (more likely) have me make it for a gathering.
- So you, my readers, can look at the recipes in different books before deciding which book(s) to buy.
- So you, my readers, can also search easily through a book or books you might have to find a new recipe you want to try, without leaving the comfort of your computer chair (and without having to look through 10 different books).
- So that I can be a little more helpful when someone asks me which authors have a recipe for Lebkuchen, or something like that.
- So that I, and you, can try out different recipes and see which ones we like the best.
If you are a cookbook author, and would like to send me a sample cookbook to review for myself, my blog, or for my support group, then please email me at delightfullyglutenfree AT gmail DOT com. I love receiving new cookbooks in the mail. :)
It will take me awhile to get all my cookbooks into the excel file. So, that means it will be updated frequently, and anytime I get a new cookbook. I have begun. Patience, please. I have a lot of books.
There are now quite a few pages within the workbook, so make sure you see them all. Some of them are currently empty, as I’ve been mostly adding the cookbooks with a fairly decent table of contents first (some of them, I have to flip through each page). Also, some of the reference books have some recipes, so I’m adding those as well. They are usually recipes by other authors/companies.
To search within an Excel spreadsheet, just click on any cell, then go to Edit, Find. Type in the word you want to search for (such as loaf) and click on find all. This will work for just the sheet that you have open. To search all sheets in the workbook (from where you were just at) click on Options, then in the drop down menu next to within, choose workbook. Then click on find all. You will get a list of recipe titles that have that word in it. Here is an example of what you will see.
Please let me know if you found this to be useful at all. I love positive feedback. ;)
